If You Have Suffered Due to a Deferred or Delayed Operation, Our Lawyers Can Assist You to Secure Compensation

Operations that are required to help alleviate or cure a health issue should be performed efficiently to ensure further problems do not arise. However, operations are often deferred by medical staff as a result of timetable complications and this can put you in danger of developing infections or other health issues.

The person requiring the operation may require emergency care as a result of the delay. This causes the health risks and costs to rise dramatically. Our attorneys can discover if the delay resulted in further health issues and costs to you and if it was due to a negligent error.

This means we invest in you on a higher level and are dedicated in ensuring that you receive a successful outcome.

Deferred Operations

Often medical professionals defer diagnosing your health issue and then further prolong your operation. This can cause your health to deteriorate so much that you eventually require an urgent operation. This is usually far more costly and worse, more dangerous for your health. Not identifying your health issue and prolonging your operation is medical negligence and the medical professional should be held responsible.

Drawn-out Operations

Usually an operation is timetabled for a set time but may be prolonged if the doctor decides to do a more rigorous examination. Although this is a valid reason, it also means that a patient can develop further health issues such as infections and nerve compartment injuries. Most of these subsequent health issues mean that the patient requires emergency care.

Some health issues that commonly arise are:

  • Sepsis
  • Bowel perforations
  • Aortic dissection
  • Uncontrolled bleeding
  • Infections
  • Free air in abdominal cavity or chest cavity
  • Bleeding complications after cardiac catheterization

Medical communities try to avoid liability for negligent choices made by its members. Often medical professionals will state that the complication was an inevitable risk of undergoing the operation, when it was actually a mistake. When we pursue compensation, we are not only helping you, we are also trying to stop others suffering as you have by holding the responsible medical professional to account.

Fantastic law firm! Getting our negligence case settled took longer than originally expected but in the end the results were well worth it. Mr. Hastings and his office were always professional, polite, and thorough in explaining my case to me. Bug thanks to him and his staff for helping me through this ordeal.

Gus Morton

We couldn’t have made a better choice by hiring the Hastings Law Firm to represent us. The staff was always professional but they showed real concern for our case and made it personal. If you need a great law firm, I would happily recommend them.

Ernie Wolford

Tommy is a great guy, genuinely concerned about his clients. This is evident in not only how he runs his firm but the fact that he chose to focus on medmal, something other attorneys have abandoned. If you’re looking for someone that will fight for you tooth and nail, he’s your man.


Tommy Hastings and his staff provided a much needed voice for us during our crisis. His attention to detail went beyond the scope of simply practicing law. He is honest, informative, pragmatic and communicated well with us from start to finish. In a sea full of competing attorneys, Tommy has cast a reputation for himself as the very best. I highly recommend his services.

Kellie Rhodes

Tommy Hastings went above and beyond during my crisis. He genuinely cares about his clients and delivered a straight-forward, honest method to resolve my issue as quick as possible. If you want the best of the best then look no further. You’ve found him.

Kendall Webb

I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were put first and was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued, my nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Tommy Hastings and his staff go above and beyond! I couldn’t have asked for a better law firm or attorney!

Joy Love

I can’t say enough great things about this law firm. The staff was friendly and courteous every step of the way. They kept me informed and explained all of my options. Tommy was amazing to work with and I couldn’t be more satisfied with my outcome. If I could give him 10 stars, I would. If you don’t go with Hastings, you are doing yourself a disservice. Highly recommend.

Misty Peterson

I would highly recommend Tommy and his law firm. He represented us in a case where a simple surgery left my mother permanently disabled. His staff was very professional and diligent and kept me well informed throughout the case. In the end we are happy with the settlement she received and feel lucky to have had Tommy as our attorney.

Earica Robert

My brother had an unnecessary surgery which left him with severe neurological issues. We called several attorneys but chose Hastings because of their focus on cases like this. While the case is still pending, we’ve already received a settlement offer that was very close to what we were looking for. Many thanks go out to Tommy and his great team!

Devin Schumacher

We’re blessed to have found the Hastings law firm. Tommy and Greg were outstanding! Both attorneys were very responsive, professional, and helpful with any questions we had about our case. Their entire staff went above and beyond to keep us updated and most of all, calm. My family feels as though we have been made (mostly) whole again. Thank you both for your hard work.
